Yes, I also like to use pop up foam square dots. Once I used a glue dot that was too big, tried to cut it with my regular scissors, then spent 10 minutes trying to get the "sticky" off of the scissors...thus I went back to the store to buy teflon scissors. I have also used extra strength glue stick before, and it just needs time to dry.

They have them everywhere. Walmart has 8x8 and 12x12. Some are themed (animals, baby, wedding, garden, other are more general). I've seen them online and at Hobby Lobby and other stores.

I have noticed that you can get sets with the book and all at Michaels. They can be pricey but Michaels always has that 40% off coupon in their weekly add, I have bought a few kits on clearance from $39. down to $9. Can't beat that!

Hey everyone! I am looking for ideas for a prayer journal. Has anyone tackled that one before? Our pastor's wife had one and she was going to share it with me before they left (they got moved) but we didn't get to get together. I would love to do one but have no idea where to start. Any help would be great!
Thanks!

Wow, that's a loaded question. I guess the best way to answer it is to tell you to view the galleries to see what people are doing. Scrapping could be making cards (greeting cards like birthday, wedding, etc.), memory books or just pages to use your photos in creative ways. Many of us have boxes of photographs that would just sit in a box rather than get viewed if we didn't scrap. By scrapbooking, you add a story to your photographs. Some journal (write short stories to describe the photo), some just add stickers and embellishments (ribbons, flowers, etc.)

You can check out my site, I'm a newbie and use basic layouts. This site refers to layouts as LO. Sometimes the jargon can get confusing. Don't be afraid to ask. Everybody has to start someplace. There are thousands of pages posted and if you give it a try, I just know you will love it.

Just click on my picture and it will take you to my pages. Enjoy

Hello everyone,

Just a quick note to introduce myself since i'm a newbie tot the site.

I just finished my first album.
Although you can clearly see it's not done by a pro, I still think it's beautifull.

I started out completely wrong (didn't know exactly what scrapping was), but learned a lot during the process.

In search of tips, I stumbled upon this amazing website. Since I'm allready hooked on scrapping (and still don't know what i'm doing half the time) i joined immediatly.
